Wilder retained his title Sunday following a dramatic draw at the Staples Center - but many believed Fury should have won had it not been for the controversial scoring of one judge. The two heavyweights fought to a split-decision draw Saturday night in Los Angeles in one of the bigger heavyweight bouts in America in years. "He said, 'Go to the right".
Wilder said the bright lights of his first pay-per-view fight and a crowd of almost 18,000 fans caused nerves that led him to hunt for a knockout as opposed to staying with his game plan.
"I saw my man Joe Hanks [against Joe Joyce] and they got to him quick".
Wilder (40-0-1) knocked Fury (27-0-1) down twice late in the fight, but many boxing experts agreed he was outboxed for much of the fight.
"When the rematch happens, there's no excuses".
"He woke up from hell - I want to put him back there", Wilder said.
Fury looked stricken with Wilder seemingly celebrating the most dramatic of victories.
"They felt like they was the only people in boxing or the heavyweight division that people cared about", Wilder said of the Joshua camp. "I don't want any other fights to happen between him and I (meeting again)". "Nine times out of 10 the referee would wave that off". Whenever he's ready, I'm ready.

After being spooked by the conflict, investors returned to buying following the long-awaited meeting between the two presidents. The confusion was exacerbated by the absence of a joint statement from the USA and China following the dinner.
Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover. That has always been the fight we want because he has the last belt.
Showtime will replay the pay-per-view fight this Saturday (9 p.m. ET), followed by the debut of the "All Access: Wilder vs. Fury" epilogue episode.
"I don't want to take nothing away from the fight but like I said, I've got a few questions that I ask myself that are circulating around, about the count", Wilder said in his post-fight press conference.
Speaking to The Telegraph recently, Fury said he's a fighting man and is more than willing to rematch Wilder next.
"Me and Fury came together and showed the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best".
"No-one has talked about Joshua in I don't know how long and we plan on keeping it that way".
"I can't wait for #WilderFury2 to end the controversial talk once and for all", Wilder wrote on Instagram.
